abortion and gay marriage. he got a phone call this morning from vice president biden who he likes personally a great deal, personally he likes vice president biden more than he likes president obama, but he had a conversation with vice president biden who asked for an endorsement. this was not an endorsement long in the making. people had been asking questions about the fact that he trashed president obama pretty harshly in "the new york times" and the atlantic -- >> very harshly. >> -- if he was doing something savvy trying to set this up. he hadn't planned to endorse literally until today. so how many votes it's going to move in the midwest, that's a dubious question. it helps president obama refute the notion that republicans are making that he can't work across the aisle. >> and all three of us think of it going the other way, what would it have meant? >> that's right. it was the same with the colin powell endorsement. >> let's look at that. excuse me. the president's campaign today released an ad touting colin powell's endorsement. we'll be right back to chuck after his -- le
changes a little bit. however, biden did the youngstown event today. it was still pretty partisan and there were tough hits on romney but i do think from the two principals, the surrogates will be pretty tough but i think for mitt romney and from barack obama, for the last six days of the campaign, assuming it does start up on wednesday again, i bet it's a slightly different tone. >> i think mother nature might take over. thank you, chuck todd. great reporting and analysis, as always. coming up, we'll continue to track sandy as it bears down on the east coast now under an hour, by the way, from making landfall. it's out there coming close. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." there you saw it. did you see that crane going down in manhattan? it's a very powerful tropical storm and an hour from making landfall, sandy is. you just saw a partially collapsed crane there that we got on film and it hangs precariously. rehema ellis is live at the scene. this has become iconic with what is happening with the situation. >> reporter: it really has. the crane is starting
, vice president joe biden is going to join us on "hardball" sunday night at 5:00 and 7:00. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> i saw a campaign ad today. you tell me what this means. >> america is facing problems of historic proportions, and your vote could mean the difference between prosperity and ruin, but who will you choose? will you vote for the elite, harvard educated lawyer who overhauled the health care system or the elite, multimillionaire lawyer who overhauled the health care system? choose wisely, america. >> back to "hardball." first a plug for mitt romney from "the simpsons." here is mr. burns, the fictional and highly unpopular owner of springfield's nuclear plant, in pre-election panic mode. >> i have to say, despite those unimaginably horrible good job numbers, we're feeling pretty confident. there's only one thing that might deny us the presidency that is the god-given property of the republican party. >> the 47% tape? >> nope. >> the empty chair? >> nope. >> cayman islands? >> not a problem. >> swiss bank accounts? $10,000 bet? i like to f
president biden was asked about the president's response to the disaster. here is what he had to say. let's take a look. >> look, i've never seen a guy so focused. i mean, he wants to make sure -- look, the last comfort we had he said, he said, look, folks i'm up late at night. you don't get immediate response from my folks, call me, here is my number. so this is a hands-on deal right now to get everything done. >> chuck todd, back to you. you've covered this president for a long time now. you've really seen how he operates. instead of doing the piecemeal sort of little i can't use the word mickey mouse aspect of politics, here is a grand decision, do the job and hope things will turn out politically okay but do the job. it seems like that's his commitment. is it? >> yes. look, this is a case where good politics is not playing politics. don't look at this, and remember who you're dealing with. you're dealing with a chris christie, a michael bloomberg, and an andy cuomo. these are three guys who are not shy. if they think the federal government was not helping them, was not being aggressiv
." that was, of course, vice president biden, referring to the advertisement we talked about in yesterday's show, in which the romney campaign leaves the distinct impression, i would say, the false impression that general motors and chrysler will send american jobs overseas to china. here's part of the romney ad. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> well, this is not the first time a romney ad has spread a falsehood. think of the ads that misled on romney's position on contraception, and the erroneous ad that said that president obama ended the work requirement for welfare. by the way, that ad is still running. but this time he messed with the wrong group, the auto industry himself. a general motor spokesman condemned the ad of romney, saying, "we've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the united states and repatriating profits back to t
